              (c)    The term "Manager" as used in this chapter means the Municipal Manager, Municipal Engineer or any other person in the service of the Village who has been properly designated by the Manager to exercise authority and represent the Manager in matters relating to the public sidewalk construction and replacement.

          The Manager is hereby empowered, authorized and directed to repair or replace, or cause to be repaired or replaced, those portions of public sidewalks within the Village which, in his opinion, are sufficiently damaged or shifted to impede pedestrian passage and to commit the Village to the payment of not more than fifty percent of the costs of such repair or replacement as set forth in this chapter, unless, in the opinion of the Manager, the public sidewalk damage was caused by a Village “street tree”, located between the sidewalk and the curb and directly adjacent to the damaged public  sidewalk.  In this case, the Village will be responsible for 100% of the sidewalk repair cost. 

          Brick sidewalks that are not maintained can become a hazard.  Accordingly, as an incentive to upgrade the Village’s public sidewalks, the Village Manager may authorize the Village share of the sidewalk replacement to be increased to 75% of the project cost where existing public brick sidewalks are replaced w/ Portland concrete, per Village construction standards. 

          905.03  NOTICE TO OWNER

          Upon determination of the Manager that a public sidewalk or walkway within the Village requires repair or replacement, the Manager shall, in writing, notify the owner of the land directly adjacent to the damaged public sidewalk or walkway of the determination that such sidewalk or walkway is in need of repair or replacement.  The notification shall include that information set forth in Sections 905.04, 905.05 and 905.06.  

          905.04  CONSTRUCTION PERMIT REQUIRED; FEE.

          Whenever any person or persons wish to construct or replace sidewalks within the Municipality, application shall first be made to the Manager to obtain a sidewalk permit authorizing the construction or replacement of sidewalks in accordance with the Village’s “Construction and Material Specifications”.  The Manager shall, upon the issuance of the sidewalk permit, also furnish a copy of the sidewalk specifications to the person making application for the permit.  The fee for the sidewalk construction permit shall be ten dollars ($10.00). 

          905.05  REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT; MUNICIPAL REIMBURSEMENT.

          Any owner receiving the notification set forth in Section 905.03 may receive reimbursement from the Village for up to 50% of the cost associated with the repair or replacement of those sidewalks or walkways described in the written notice under the following conditions: 

(a)   Within the sixty (60) days immediately following the notification,  

        set forth in Section 905.03, the owner shall obtain and submit to the Municipality a written estimate or estimates for the cost of repair or replacement which estimate or estimates shall set forth the extent of repair or replacement and that such repair or replacement meets all of the requirements of the Village’s “Construction and Materials Specifications”. 

(b)  Within thirty (30), days of receipt of any estimate or estimates by an owner for the repair or replacement of any sidewalk or walkway, the Manager or his designee shall notify the owner in writing as to the acceptance of an estimate for the repair or replacement, the amount of such estimate or estimates reasonably related to required repair or replacement, or the necessity for additional or alternate estimates. 

(c)  Upon approval of the scope and amount of an estimate the owner shall cause all work associated with the repair or replacement to be completed within sixty (60) days unless extended by the Manager or his designee.

          905.06  REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT; NO MUNICIPAL REIMBURSEMENT.

          Any owner proceeding with the repair or replacement of any public sidewalk or walkway after receiving the notification set forth in Section 905.03 who does not comply with all of the provisions of Section 905.04 shall not be entitled to municipal reimbursement for any of the cost associated with repair or replacement.  Any owner who proceeds with repair or replacement in the absence of the notification set forth in Section 905.03 shall not be entitled to municipal reimbursement.  (Ord. 25-95. Passed 9-6-95. 

          905.07  PROJECT COST; VILLAGE ASSESSMENT.

(a)  If an owner fails to proceed with the repair or replacement of any public sidewalk or walkway after receiving the notice set forth in Section 905.03, whether in accordance with Section 905.04 or 905.05, the Municipality may proceed any time after sixty (60) days from the date provided in the notice to cause the repair or replacement as set forth in the notice. 

(b)  Should the Municipality proceed with the repair or replacement under this section, then the owner shall be invoiced for one hundred percent (100%) of the cost of such repair or replacement.

(c)  If any owner fails to make payment of the amount invoiced for public sidewalk or walkway repair or replacement as provided for in this section within sixty (60) days of the invoicing therefor, the Manager shall cause written return to be made to the County Auditor for an amount equal to the costs of the repair or replacement and to enter such amount upon the tax duplicate to become a lien upon such lands from the date of entry, to be collected as other taxes and returned to the Municipality. (Ord. 25-95. Passed 9-6-95.) 

          905.08  MAINTENANCE TO BE OWNER'S RESPONSIBILITY.

          The responsibility for maintaining a public sidewalk or walkway safe for public use rests with the owner or agent having charge of the lands directly adjacent to the public sidewalk or walkway.  The Municipality assumes none of this responsibility by accepting participation in public sidewalk or walkway repair or replacement or by agreement to participate in sidewalk or walkway repair or replacement. (Ord. 25-95. Passed 9-6-95.) 

          905.09 COMPLIANCE ; NON-CONCRETE

          All public sidewalks constructed or replaced in the Municipality after the adoption of this Ordinance shall be constructed or replaced to comply with the Village’s ”Construction and Materials Specifications,” as adopted and/or amended by Council Resolution. 

          Construction or replacement of public sidewalks, designed and built in accordance with the Village’s “Construction and Materials Specifications,” with materials other than Portland cement concrete, may be approved by the Manager for low volume neighborhood residential uses.  The cost for installation and maintenance of non-concrete public sidewalks, including areas in close proximity to “street trees”, shall be 100% the responsibility of the adjacent property owner.

AN ORDINANCE DECLARING IMPROVEMENTS TO CERTAIN REAL PROPERTY TO BE A PUBLIC PURPOSE AND EXEMPT FROM REAL PROPERTY TAXES; SPECIFYING THE PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENTS THAT, ONCE MADE, WILL DIRECTLY BENEFIT THAT PROPERTY; REQUIRING THE OWNERS OF THAT PROPERTY TO MAKE SERVICE PAYMENTS IN LIEU OF TAXES; ESTABLISHING A MUNICIPAL PUBLIC IMPROVEMENT TAX INCREMENT EQUIVALENT FUND; APPROVING AND AUTHORIZING THE EXECUTION OF A TAX INCREMENT FINANCING AGREEMENT AND A COMPENSATION AGREEMENT; CREATING A TAX INCENTIVE REVIEW COUNCIL; ESTABLISHING NON-DISCRIMINATORY HIRING POLICIES; AND PROVIDING RELATED AUTHORIZATIONS PURSUANT TO OHIO REVISED CODE SECTIONS 5709.40(B), 5709.42, 5709.43 AND 5709.85

 

WHEREAS, Ohio Revised Code Sections 5709.40, 5709.42 and 5709.43 (the “TIF Statutes”) and particularly, Section 5709.40(B) thereof, provide that this Council of the Village of Granville, Ohio (the “Village”) may, under certain circumstances, (i) declare improvements to industrial and commercial real property located in the Village to be a public purpose, thereby exempting those improvements from real property taxation for a specific period of time, (ii) specify public infrastructure improvements made, to be made, or in the process of being made, that directly benefit, or that once made, will directly benefit that real property, (iii) provide for the making of service payments in lieu of taxes by the owners of that real property, (iv) establish a municipal public improvement tax increment equivalent fund into which those payments will be deposited, and (v) compensate a school district; and 

WHEREAS, this Council anticipates that the present and future owners (each an “Owner”, and collectively, the “Owners”) of the real property described in Exhibit A attached to this ordinance, as currently or subsequently configured (the “Property”), will be constructing the improvements described in Exhibit B attached to this ordinance (the “Project”, and a Project as defined in the TIF Statutes) on the Property; and 

WHEREAS, the public infrastructure improvements described in Exhibit C attached to this ordinance (the “Public Infrastructure”) will directly benefit the Property; and 

WHEREAS, it is in the best interest of the Village to declare the applicable increase in the true value to the Property (the “Improvements”, each of which is an Improvement as defined in the TIF Statutes) to be a public purpose and to provide an exemption from real property taxes as set forth in this ordinance; and 

WHEREAS, it is necessary and appropriate and in the best interests of the Village to provide for the payment of service payments in lieu of taxes with respect to the Improvements pursuant to the TIF Statutes; and 

WHEREAS, notice of this Council’s intention to declare 100% of the Improvements exempt from real property taxes and to pass this ordinance was delivered at least 14 days prior to the passage of this ordinance to the Board of Education of the Granville Exempted Village School District and the Board of Education of the Career and Technology Education Centers (together, the “School Districts”) containing the information required by Ohio Revised Code Sections 5709.40 and 5709.83, and this Council ratifies and affirms the delivery of the notice; and 

WHEREAS, this ordinance provides that annual payments shall be made to the School Districts equal to the amount of real property taxes that would have been payable to the School Districts had the Improvements not been exempted from taxation pursuant to this ordinance, and, therefore, pursuant to Section 5709.40(D)(1) of the TIF Statutes, approval of this ordinance by the Boards of Education of the School Districts is not required; and

WHEREAS, this Council desires that the Public Infrastructure be constructed; and 

WHEREAS, this Council desires that a portion of the costs of the Public Infrastructure, and the debt service on any debt issued by the Village to pay costs of the Public Infrastructure, be paid from the payments in lieu of taxes made in respect with the Improvements; and 

WHEREAS, Ohio Revised Code Section 5709.85(A) requires the legislative authority of any municipal corporation granting an exemption from taxation under Ohio Revised Code Section 5709.40 to create a tax incentive review council (“TIRC”), which TIRC is required to perform an annual review of exemptions from taxation granted pursuant to Ohio Revised Code Section 5709.40; and

WHEREAS, pursuant to Ohio Revised Code Section 5709.832, the legislative authority of any municipal corporation that grants an exemption from taxation under Ohio Revised Code Section 5709.40 must develop policies that ensure that the recipient of the exemption practices nondiscriminatory hiring in its operations;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED by the Council of the Village of Granville, Ohio, that: 

Section 1. This Council hereby determines and finds that it is in the best interests of the Village to declare the Improvements to the Property to be a public purpose and to grant an exemption from a portion of the real property taxes on those Improvements. This Council further finds and determines that (a) the Improvements to the Property subsequent to the effective date of this ordinance are hereby declared to be a public purpose, and (b) 100% of the Improvements shall be exempt from real property taxation for a period commencing with the tax year the construction of an Improvement is completed after the effective date of this ordinance and ending on the earlier of (i) 30 years after such date or (ii) the date on which the Village can no longer require service payments in lieu of taxes, all in accordance with the TIF Statutes. To the extent permitted by law, such property tax exemption shall commence in different tax years on a parcel-by-parcel basis, with a separate above-described exemption term for each parcel. 

Section 2. Each Owner of the Property, or any portion thereof, is hereby required to, and shall make, service payments in lieu of taxes to the Treasurer of Licking County (the “County Treasurer”) on or before the final dates for payment of real property taxes, which service payments shall be remitted to the Village for deposit in the TIF Fund (as defined below), pursuant to TIF Statutes and as provided in Section 4 of this ordinance. Each payment shall be in the same amount as the real property taxes that would have been charged and payable against 100% of the Improvements (after credit for any other payments received by the Village under Ohio Revised Code Section 319.302) had an exemption from taxation not been granted, and otherwise shall be in accordance with the requirements of the TIF Statutes. Any late payments shall be subject to penalty and bear interest at the then current rate established under Ohio Revised Code Sections 323.121(B)(1) and 5703.47, as the same may be amended from time to time, or any successor provisions thereto, as the same may be amended from time to time (the payment of penalties and interest are collectively referred to herein with the payments in lieu of taxes and any related amounts received by the Village under Ohio Revised Code Section 319.302 as the “Service Payments”). The Service Payments, and any other payments in connection with 100% of the Improvements which are received by the County Treasurer in connection with reduction required by Ohio Revised Code Section 319.302, as the same many be amended from time to time, or any successor provisions thereto as the same may be amended from time to time (the “Property Tax Rollback Payments”) shall be allocated and deposited in accordance with Section 4 of this ordinance. 

Section 3. This Council finds and determines that the Public Infrastructure constitute public infrastructure improvements that, once made, will directly benefit the Property. 

Section 4. This Council hereby authorizes and directs the Director of Finance of the Village (the “Finance Officer”) to establish pursuant to and in accordance with the provisions of Ohio Revised Code Section 5709.43, the Columbus Road-Weaver Drive Municipal Public Improvement Tax Increment Equivalent Fund (the “TIF Fund”) to be maintained in the custody of the Village. The TIF Fund shall receive all Service Payments and Property Tax Rollback Payments made in respect of the Improvements which are paid to the Village in accordance with this ordinance. The Finance Officer is further authorized to establish any accounts or subaccounts within the TIF Fund that the Finance Officer deems appropriate. 

 Amounts deposited in the TIF Fund shall be used to pay costs of constructing the Public Infrastructure, including payment of debt service on debt issued to pay those costs, and to compensate the School Districts. 

 The TIF Fund shall remain in existence so long as the Service Payments are collected and used for the aforesaid purposes, after which the TIF Fund shall be dissolved in accordance with the TIF Statutes. Upon such dissolution, any incidental surplus remaining in the TIF Fund shall be disposed as provided in the TIF Statutes.

 Pursuant to Sections 5709.40 and 5709.42 of the TIF Statutes, the County Treasurer shall distribute to the School Districts solely from those payments in lieu of real property taxes provided for in Section 2 of this ordinance, and at the same time and in the same manner as real property tax payments, amounts equal to the amounts that the School Districts would otherwise receive as real property tax payments derived from the Improvements absent the passage of this ordinance. If in any year the County Treasurer does not make such distributions to the School Districts, the Village shall pay such amounts to the School Districts, but solely from moneys in the TIF Fund. 

 It is the intention of this Council that each year, the Village shall pay to the Township of Granville, in Licking County, Ohio (the “Township”), an amount equal to the real property tax revenues from the Township’s fire and medical service property tax levies derived from the Improvements that the Township would otherwise receive during such year as absent the passage of this ordinance. Such payments shall be made solely from moneys in the TIF Fund if and when the TIF Statutes are amended to permit such payments; otherwise, such payments shall be made only to the extent that legally available amounts from other Village funds are appropriated for the purpose for such year. The payments required to be made by the Village pursuant to this paragraph do not constitute a debt or pledge of the faith, credit or taxing power of the Village, and neither the Township nor any other person or entity has the right to have taxes levied or appropriations made by this Council or any future Village council to fund such payments. 

Section 5. The Tax Increment Financing Agreement by and between the Village and Raccoon Creek, LLC (the “TIF Agreement”) in the form presently on file with this Council providing for, among other things, the payment of such Service Payments with respect to the Improvements, is hereby approved, and the Village Manager is hereby authorized to execute and deliver the TIF Agreement with such changes that are not inconsistent with this ordinance, are not substantially adverse to the Village, and are approved by the Village Manager. The approval of any changes to the TIF Agreement, and the character of the changes as not being substantially adverse to the Village, shall be evidenced conclusively by the Village Manager’s execution of the TIF Agreement. This Council hereby authorizes and directs the Finance Officer to make such arrangements as are necessary and proper for collection from each Owner of the service payments in lieu of taxes plus any applicable penalties and interest.

Section 6. The Village Manager, the Finance Officer and the Law Director, and any other Village official, as appropriate, are each authorized and directed to sign any other documents, instruments or certificates and to take such actions as are necessary or appropriate to consummate or implement the transactions described in or contemplated by this ordinance, the TIF Agreement. 

Section 7. The Licking County Tax Incentive Review Council, whose creation is hereby approved, confirmed and ratified, shall serve as the TIRC to the extent permitted by law. If for any reason the Licking County Tax Incentive Review Council is unable to so serve, this Council hereby creates a new TIRC pursuant to Ohio Revised Code Section 5709.85(A). The TIRC shall meet annually to determine the increase in the true value of each parcel of the Property on which there has been Improvement as a result of the exemption granted by this ordinance, the value of the Improvements exempted pursuant to this ordinance, the number of new employees or retained employees at the site of the Improvements as a result of the exemption granted by this ordinance, and the exemption recipient’s compliance with the nondiscriminatory hiring policies developed by the Village. This Council directs the Village Manager to appoint two (2) members to serve on the TIRC, and hereby concurs in the appointments of such TIRC members by the Village Manager. This Council hereby separately authorizes the Village Manager or other appropriate officers of the Village, to take any and all actions necessary to assist in the appointment of the remaining members of the TIRC, including providing to the appropriate officials of Licking County and the School Districts a copy of this ordinance.

Section 8. As required by Ohio Revised Code Section 5709.832, the Village hereby establishes the following nondiscriminatory hiring policies for application to recipients of exemptions granted pursuant to this ordinance:

a. No tax exemption recipient may deny employment to an individual solely on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, ancestry, or other non-job related criteria.

b. The TIRC shall review each exemption recipient’s compliance with the foregoing nondiscrimination requirement and, if necessary, may submit to this Council written recommendations for enhancing compliance with the nondiscrimination requirement.

Section 9. The Clerk of this Council is hereby directed to deliver a copy of this ordinance to the Director of the Department of Development of the State of Ohio within fifteen days after its passage. On or before March 31 of each year that the exemption set forth in Section 1 hereof remains in effect, the Village Manager shall prepare and submit, or cause to be prepared and submitted, to the Director of the Department of Development of the State of Ohio the status report required under Ohio Revised Code Section 5709.40(I). 

Section 10. This Council finds and determines that all formal actions of this Council concerning and relating to the passage of this ordinance were taken in an open meeting of this Council and that all deliberations of this Council that resulted in those formal actions were in meetings open to the public in compliance with the law. 

Section 11. This ordinance shall be in full force and effect from and after the earliest period allowed by law.

(c)        The Planning Commission or Village Council shall request an advisory opinion from the Granville Historical Society as to the historical significance, valuable
